Requests

Ww-DCR-wW@global

Martellodifiume@global

You need to request usurpation for all the existing users locally, global usurpation is possible only for small wikis that do not have local bureaucrats. — Yerpo Eh? 15:15, 18 October 2014 (UTC)
The problem is that in order to rename your account I need to usurp accounts an all seven wikis. Ruslik (talk) 17:43, 18 October 2014 (UTC)
I update the status, usurpations were concluded. Thanks to everyone! --Ombra 09:49, 1 December 2014 (UTC)

Usurpation is a steward task now, it makes no sense for it to go through local processes. I've usurped all four accounts, and renamed the user. Ajraddatz (talk) 23:16, 7 December 2014 (UTC)

Done, per local confirmation. Savhñ 16:48, 8 December 2014 (UTC)

SK Moose@global

There are other accounts that will need to be usurped, so you would be better to choose a different name. Ruslik (talk) 05:09, 23 November 2014 (UTC)

I would then like to be given the global username DropTheßass, with the eszett character. SK Moose (talk) 17:21, 3 December 2014 (UTC)

@SK Moose: Updated into request template, though I believe that this is going to be too close to an existing username, and I would suggest that try again, and look for something unique.  — billinghurst sDrewth
@SK Moose:, please indeed choose a unique nick. Such variations can lead to confusion. Savhñ 16:44, 8 December 2014 (UTC)

Geoide@itwiki

I've suggested this afternoon to fix the situation because she is one of the top editors on it.wiki related to medicine (especially good and featured articles) and I am introducing her to various "meta-wiki" infrastructures. This would simplify her life (and mine as well :D)--Alexmar983 (talk) 15:50, 23 November 2014 (UTC)
Hi! I've checked the unatatched accounts, and since you are the owner of the SUL account, it should be relatively easy to have the accounts usurped (no problem for fr, en and es, though I'd like the opinion of commons 'crats on the usurpation on commons). With SUL finalisation, this should happen automatically. We can also proceed inmediately with the global rename should you wish so. Cordially, Savhñ 00:02, 25 November 2014 (UTC)
This is perfect. Many thanks.--Geoide (talk) 09:12, 25 November 2014 (UTC)
Usurped on en, fr and es. Checking for commons. Savhñ 09:57, 25 November 2014 (UTC)
Considering the old user has uploaded a file to commons, I prefer to wait for SUL finalisation, when this will happen automatically with the appropiate notifications. Closing as (partially) done. Savhñ 16:42, 8 December 2014 (UTC)
Many thanks: sorry for my late replay.--Geoide (talk) 23:25, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

fili007@global

The requested global username fvalle is already taken. Please choose another one. Maire 12:48, 30 November 2014 (UTC)

Munjanes@global (usurp request)

  • Comment Comment This user is blocked on two wikis and this may be considered a controversial move, especially where usurps are required.  — billinghurst sDrewth 00:45, 4 December 2014 (UTC)
Agree with Billinghurst above. Renamings are a favour and have cross-wiki impact, so they should be avoided when controversial. Closing as not done. Savhñ 16:31, 8 December 2014 (UTC)

They don't seem worth capturing. Suggest leave the unattached and just edit at those wikis if they need to do so.  — billinghurst sDrewth 14:20, 4 December 2014 (UTC)
I would advise the user to choose a different name. Ruslik (talk) 12:23, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

Pass a Method@enwiki

Outside comment of party who had been previously involved with the editor in question: It seems to me very appropriate to perhaps point out that the user in question has, apparently, made few if any edits anywhere in the WMF entities, at least under either of these names, since the name change was instituted. If an account is, basically, apparently retired immediately after a name change, with no obvious reasons which would indicate that the retirement was not independent of the name change, such as perhaps people dying, is there any particular reason to honor the "last request" of an inactive editor with a rather significant history of problematic editing, including documented abuse of multiple sockpuppet accounts? If, as seems to be the case, the party has retired, and the name change apparently made on purely personal reasons apparently unrelated to any real problems, such as harassment, if the only way to reverse the account name in one wiki is to reverse the global account name change, I honestly cannot see, at this point, any clear reason to not do so, rather than comply with what seems to be a rather likely attempt at a problematic editor to attempt to redefine themselves after the fact.

HG on several projects

Contacted on enwiki; on hold. Ajraddatz (talk) 22:50, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
Hi. I tried responding to Ajraddatz from my enwiki page. Sorry if that didn't work. The gist: if you think that "HCG" shouldn't be usurped, then I would choose HG1 for a rename. I've revised the request above with the new confirmation diff. Could you or somebody implement that SUL for me? Please ping me on enwiki and let me know. Thanks very much! HG (talk) 20:31, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
Hey, apologies; I did see your post but have been very busy. HG1 would be a better choice for a name. If nobody else gets to your request, I will action it later today. Sorry again, Ajraddatz (talk) 21:13, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
Hi, no problem. Busy is good. Cheers, HG (talk) 21:30, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

Theponderism@global

The account "Pndr" already exists. Please, choose another name. Ruslik (talk) 16:53, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
I would like to usurp this account as it does not have edits on any project. Is this no longer possible (as I have seen this done before), and if so, why not (and why is this not stated anywhere that I can find)? Theponderism (talk) 18:56, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
There are no set rules for global usurpations at this point, and most stewards/global renamers tend to go on the side of caution, since not everyone uses their account to edit. If you would like to usurp it, please leave the nowiki account a note asking if it would be OK with a different name, and wait for at least a month for a reply. Ajraddatz (talk) 22:19, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
Very well - please mark this request as "not done" at this time as I don't think it should be hanging around here for a month. Theponderism (talk) 22:23, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

Obserwator@plwikipedia

Comment: there have been problems with logins on other projects also (although the aforelinked Phapricator task was closed as "Resolved"). –Ejs-80 04:51, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
By the way, I was wondering why Global account information says that the global Obserwator account was registered in April 2013, while Obserwator@plwiki was created in January 2014 (and it is currently the only local account with that name). This rename explains that, since the account which was renamed – now Obserwator (przejęte) – was created in May 2006. That may also cause merging problems: the global account presumably still belongs to the user with the usurped plwiki account (Obserwator (przejęte)). –Ejs-80 05:24, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
I've deleted the global account. You can now use pl:Special:MergeAccount. Ajraddatz (talk) 06:47, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

Scrooge_McDuck@itwiki

Done. The it.wiki account Scrooge_McDuck has been renamed to GigioGigetto. Please let us know if there are accounts on other projects which you'd also liked renamed to GigioGigetto. We will require diffs from those accounts to confirm they are actually yours.

Hi, I'm the owner of the SUL account Braveheart. I'd like to finalize my SUL account and usurp a few local accounts that don't belong to me. None of them have made edits in the local wiki if CentralAuth is to be believed. I'll take care of the de.wikiquote user at a later stage since it's not mine and there's a separate process for unlocking that user if IIRC.

Thanks! Braveheart (talk) 21:53, 6 December 2014 (UTC)

Good morning. I am authorized by the owner of the global account Canaan to post this request on his behalf as per this. Global account owner User:Canaan@eswiki wishes to finalize the SUL, and therefore request that the following accounts on this projects be usurped:

Most of them have no edits, except a couple of them who have 2 edits at most. Thanks in advance for your help. On behalf of Canaan@global: — M 10:09, 18 November 2014 (UTC)

Partially done; the zhwiki accounts have been used recently and might be the same person. I will attempt to make contact before usurping to let them choose another name. Ajraddatz (talk) 20:27, 18 November 2014 (UTC)
Many thanks :), I will inform Canaan about this. It would be great if those accounts could be usurped, but as you say, better to contact them first. Best regards, — M 15:18, 19 November 2014 (UTC) 15:18, 19 November 2014 (UTC)

Flyingbird@global

"Flyingbird" is momenteel geen globaal account, waardoor we niet globaal kunnen hernoemen. Bovendien is het mogelijk dat er over enkele weken de optie beschikbaar komt om twee (of meer accounts) samen te voegen, waardoor alle bewerkingen die je nu al met de gebruikersnaam "Carol Fenijn" hebt onder één naam komen. Als je liever nu al naar "Carol Fenijn" hernoemd wordt, kan dat (en kan de accountmerge later uitgevoerd worden), maar dan zou het veel eenvoudiger zijn als je een globaal account voor Flyingbird aanmaakt door naar nl:Speciaal:GebruikerSamenvoegen te gaan met dat account. Savhñ 10:30, 31 December 2014 (UTC)
Zojuist heb ik dat samenvoegen gedaan, maar ik krijg de melding dat el: tr: en zh: niet gekoppeld konden worden. Kan dat kwaad? Flyingbird (talk) 10:37, 31 December 2014 (UTC)
